In the baseline graph, we normalize all criteria to an equal relevance, which allows you to see how a vendor's product scores on its own merit, without regard to any one module taking precedence over another. By checking the vendor's results against a normalized baseline, you clearly see the modules and functionality on which the vendor puts the most emphasis. We adjust the baseline in the second type of graph so that it

CRM Selections: When An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure Part One: The CRM Selection Challenge


Two of the greatest challenges IT decision makers face when selecting a CRM package is first, having a comprehensive understanding of their functional and technical requirements and second, identifying the vendors that best match their requirements. This article will focus on determining the functionality and technology required to enable business processes, and how to compare vendor offerings once those requirements have been documented.

Fear of the Unknown, the Art of War, and Competitiveness


It is not unusual to use the metaphor of war to construct theories of business competition—substituting competing vendors for the mortal enemy. But what about the enemy within? And what if it is in fact a company's strongest resource?

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions


For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions.

Overview of the Three BI Models Traditional BI Traditional license software vendors sell software for an initial, up-front license fee (along with a smaller, annual maintenance fee.) It is the responsibility of customers of that software to purchase hardware, install the software, integrate various sub-components required to make the software function and configure Read More

Eco-mode: Benefits and Risks of Energy-saving Modes of UPS Operation


Many newer uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) systems have an energy-saving operating mode known as “eco-mode” or by some other descriptor. Nevertheless, surveys show that few data centers actually use this mode, because of the known or anticipated side effects. Unfortunately, the marketing materials for these operating modes do not adequately explain the cost/benefit tradeoffs. This paper shows that eco-mode provides a reduction of approximately 2% in data center energy consumption and explains the various limitations and concerns that arise from eco-mode use. Situations where these operating modes are recommended and contraindicated are also described.
